Teeth loss can deteriorate oral as well as overall health of a person. Not only does it reduce the self-confidence of the patient, but it also gives rise to an imbalance in nutritional intake. To counter these problems, there have been many types of restorations developed in the field of dental medicine. Dentures have been around for many decades now. The recent advancements in technology and dental materials have improved the quality of dentures. Unlike conventional dentures of the past, we have implant-supported dentures today which are stable and give more confidence to patients. Our restorative care has brought healthy smiles in many of our patients. Our dentures continue to work wonderfully for our patients based in Apex, Cary and surrounding communities.Teeth loss – Causes and Effects
There can be several causes for teeth loss which include but are not limited to aging, dental decay, gum infection and trauma. Whatever the causes are, teeth loss can have direct impact on a person’s oral and overall health. Teeth loss can firstly affect the nutritional intake. People who have many teeth missing hesitate to eat hard food items. This can create an imbalance in the nutritional intake. Secondly, people with missing teeth may lack the confidence to participate in events. This hampers their social life. Teeth loss can also cause the skin to sag because of jawbone resorption. Teeth restoration through dentures can help counter most of these problems.Dentures Treatment
Teeth restoration using dentures is a step-by-step process. Firstly the dentist extracts any remaining teeth, which are decayed or weak. Once the teeth are extracted, a temporary denture is prepared in the office and provided to patient. Temporaries are provided because the gum tissues recede over a period of time after teeth extraction. After few months, the impressions of dental arches are taken and models of dentures are prepared in the lab. The dentist checks the fit of dentures and makes necessary adjustments to the final product. The final denture is then delivered to the patient who may have to visit the dentist once in few weeks to ensure necessary adjustments are made.
Implant supported dentures can restore lost teeth in patients who have healthy supporting bones. The dentures in this case are supported by dental implants which are strategically inserted in the jawbone. These dentures are more stable and convenient for patients when compared to conventional dentures.

I have been a patient of Dr. Chirnalli's for almost two years. I came for a consult on replacing my upper denture. Dr. Chirnalli showed me that dentures don't have to look like dentures. I brought in a picture of myself as a younger person and told Dr. Chirnalli I would love to have that smile back. Well, I have it and I couldn't be happier. Because of Dr. Chirnalli's dedication to his patients I can feel young and youthful again. Dr.Chirnalli also made me a partial that fits perfectly and is so comfortable. Thanks Dr. Chirnalli for all that you have done for me.. I would recommend Dr. Chirnalli and his staff to anyone. " Martha DavisMore Reviews
I used to go to another place for dental care. I had to find a new dentist as I wanted to have evening and flexible hours. Couple of my friends suggested to try Apex Smiles. I tried and it was great. Their friendly and smiley service was awesome. They respect your appointment as they don't leave you in the waiting room forever. I would strongly recommend anyone who wants to try a new place for dental care." Bharathi PandiMore Reviews
i am very pleased with and greatful for the dental services Dr. Chirnalli and his team provided to save my teeth- and improve my smile. I went to Apex Smiles for a second opinion. My former dentist and the specialists she referred me to had recommended an expensive option that I did not want: pulling my existing upper teeth and replacing them with a combination of implants and dentures : ( I was so happy when Dr Chirnalli said he could save my teeth! It was a lengthy process, and to be honest, it was not always fun. Through it all, however, I have been consistently impressed by Dr. Chirnallis's kindness, good humor, and skill.More Reviews
